From goodreads.com : A tender but lively debut novel about a man, a woman, and their Chevrolet dealer.
Agathe and Rejean Lapointe are about to celebrate their twentieth wedding anniversary when Rejean’s beloved Chevy Silverado is found abandoned at the side of the road – with no trace of Rejean. Agathe handles her grief by fondling the shirts in the Big and Tall department at Henderman’s Family Apparel and carrying on a relationship with a cigarette survey. As her hope dwindles, Agathe falls in with her spirited coworker Debbie, who teaches Agathe about rock and roll, and with Martin Bureau, the one man who might just know the truth about Rejean’s fate.
Reminiscent of 2015 Canada Reads finalist And the Birds Rained Down and Gone Girl, I Am A Truck is a funny and moving portrayal of Acadian love and loyalty.
